Mayweather lines up four fights for 2021 including Paul brothers and 50 Cent

Floyd Mayweather is lining up a grudge match against rapper 50 Cent as he plans to fight four times in 2021.

The ring legend also wants to take on YouTuber brothers Logan and Jake Paul, as well as taking part in an exhibition in Japan.

Mayweather was this week called out by 50 Cent – real name Curtis Jackson – who challenged him to end their long-standing feud in the ring.

The undefeated former five-division champion has accepted Jackson’s challenge – and confirmed he still wants to fight Logan Paul after their planned February 20 bout was postponed.

Mayweather also laid down the gauntlet to Logan’s brother Jake as he set out his plans for the year ahead.

And he confirmed he will fight at the Mega 21 event in Tokyo on January 28 – returning to the city for the first time since he reduced Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa to tears in an exhibition match in 2018.

Announcing his plans on Instagram, Mayweather said: “This year I will focus on several exhibitions.

“I will have an exhibition in Tokyo, Japan again. Of course the one with Logan Paul and I; and if Jake Paul can get past his next opponent Ben Askren, I will have an exhibition with him as well.”

Mayweather then moved on to the challenge from 50 Cent – who recently said he would fight the much smaller 43-year-old if he could make weight.

50-0 fighter Mayweather said he would fight his former friend regardless of weight class.

“I also heard that 50 cent would fight me but claims I’m too small,” he wrote.

“If he wants to lace up at the end of the year, we can do an exhibition then.

“I don’t care about weight class with any of these guys. The Paul brothers will make great money with the events, but with 50 cent It has to be ‘Winner Take All’.”

He and 50 Cent have been exchanging barbs for years on social media, with the hip-hop star having claimed Mayweather is struggling for money.

The rapper recently appeared on V-103’s The Morning Culture radio show, and was asked if he would take on Mayweather.

The 45-year-old replied: “I’d fight Floyd (Mayweather) if I could get down there.

“I don’t think I could make weight though. Or he’d just have to let me not get down to 150 (pounds).”
